CRASH Theater Co. is a collective of theater artists founded on the principle that contemporary theater must reflect the diverse, multifaceted audience of today. CRASH commits to having women in creative and executive roles, people of diverse backgrounds in all casts, and original, ensemble-devised elements in all productions. CRASH seeks to reinvigorate classic masterpieces by refracting them through a modern, actor-driven lens. CRASH also emphasizes poetic modern narratives that break out of a naturalistic framework. In these ways, CRASH seeks to move beyond a traditional theater audience and gain relevance in contemporary storytelling.
